Saalih ibn Rashid al-Huwaymil said, “The person who the following story is about told me himself that one time he left the mosque which Shaikh Ibn Baaz used to pray in and went to him to give him salaam and ask him a question. This individual had some things which were incorrect like shaving and so on.
The point is that when he went to ask him, the Shaikh was in a hurry and postponed the meeting with him till another time. [But then] when the car moved off, the Shaikh said to his driver, ‘Go back.’ So the driver took the car back to where the questioner was, and the Shaikh then listened to his question and answered him.
Then the Shaikh [who was blind] touched the questioner’s chin and advised him to let his beard grow and supplicated for the youth. So that youth said that he never shaved it after that day and that he, by Allaah’s Grace and then through the Shaikh stuck to the path of guidance after that.”
